      BB: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      UTG: $2.84 (142 bb)
      MP: $1.44 (72 bb)
      CO: $1.43 (71.5 bb) 55/11/fld cbet 60/hands 54
      Hero (BTN): $2.13 (106.5 bb)
      SB: $1.35 (67.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:spade: K:diamond:
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 3 folds, CO calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.25) 9:heart: 7:club: 7:diamond: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.14, CO calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.53) Q:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.33, CO calls $0.33

      River: ($1.19) 8:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.86, Hero folds

      flop : ok dry board to cbet with 2 overcards .

      turn : he checks + we improve to top pair so i bet for value .

      river : he doesnt have much left . But while i was playing i was thinking with what worst hands might do that + i cant see any bluffs on his range . Also this ch/call , ch/call and shove river line looks really strong like a slow play 7 or sth . What u think ?

      Preflop: raising to 6BB here. Small issue, but I think you should raise slightly larger with such a huge fish in the hand. Simply for pure value.

      Flop: With ace high here, I may check back. With KQ high I probably just bet and hope for the best.

      Turn: Standard bet

      River: This is one of the worst possible cards in the deck. While I agree he has a lot of stuff like JT or backdoor flush or even 7X, I think it is very possible that he just shows up with some random 9X turned into a bluff. It is not out of the question and I have seen fishes do many stupid plays from my experience.

      I think it's close. I don't mind folding here, but calling is also fine. I would expect to be good here around 30% of the time so this is something like a breakeven call in my opinion.
